paint colors 2021

This year has been one of uncertainty, to say the least. Homeowners have been stuck inside which has led to many improvement projects. One of the most economical home improvement projects includes painting the exterior and interior. For those who have not done so yet, you may want to pay attention to the new colors that will be trending in 2021.

These new colors are all about balance which we all need. If you want to make your house stand out or see paint chipping on your walls, now is the time to consider repainting your home. The benefits of a fresh coat of paint go much deeper than just a new look. It can also increase the value and protect your home from the elements.

Color Trends for 2021

We need color inspiration and ideas to match what we want to invoke for the new year. Soothing, calming, and protective spaces are all good. However, we can also include painting spaces to provoke energy and stimulation with bold or not-so traditional paint colors. These trendy paint colors will be used a lot more than they have in recent years.

1. Warm Whites

When it comes to white paint, there are so many options in undertones and finishes. Choosing the right shade can be tricky. To be on-trend, go with a warm white. Welcoming and soothing are other ways to describe this tone of white. It’s a great option for traditional spaces and pairs well with other creamy tones and golden hues.

Other warm neutrals in this category can include beiges, browns, and grays. These neutral colors will help bring calmness during a season of chaos. All of these colors work great in spaces with a lot of natural light.

2. Bold Blues

Blue paint colors look equally good on walls as they do millwork. Some shades of blue with grey undertones do not come off as too dark or heavy. You’ll want to choose a blue color that creates a great background to build upon. Lighter blue colors can infuse a calm feeling into a room. Blue also pairs well with warmer toned woods or decor, like coral accents.

3. Muddy Greens

This shade of green adds the right amount of color while still looking balanced and neutral. A muddy green color, like olive green, is deep and sophisticated. They are slightly muted colors that add comfort and tranquility to any space.  The subdued shade of a muddy green paint color has an undeniable appeal that can both tone down and jazz up a space.

4. Muted Reds

Red paint can make a statement. Red is an energetic color that denotes power and passion. It adds a lot of impact to a room at minimal expense. If you’re not sure what type of red to use in your space, consider a muted red.  It makes a space inviting and memorable.

If a whole red room is too much, a little splash of red will make a big impact. You can use red as an accent wall in a neutral room or on a front door. Muted red paint colors pair well with pewter and beige for a subdued look or can be accented by touches of gold for a more dramatic effect.

5. Bright Pinks

For years pink has been closely associated with younger children, the colors of nurseries, and tween rooms. For 2021, pink will be used in new sophisticated ways. Pink paint can be elegant and fun. No longer a color reserved for princess-inspired bedrooms and powder rooms, pink will be popping up everywhere. It's not hard to see why. Pink is a fresh and appealing color that's easier to decorate with than you may think.
